The World turns on Colchester Lathes.
Colchester maintains a heritage that spans a century of lathe making.
Colchester's conventional lathe range gives you exceptional ease of use and a huge choice of standard and optional equipment guarantees top of the range performance for the most complex and challenging jobs.
Throughout the world, apprentices and engineers have trained on Colchester manual lathes while production, toolroom and maintenance departments have used Colchester conventional machines as the bedrock of their turning capability.
All Colchester centre lathes are built to withstand rugged, heavy duty use, while at the same time, are capable of very fine precision turning. Our centre lathes give years of outstanding service with the absolute minimum of maintenance.
These exceptional conventional lathes produce outstanding results not least due to their infinitely variable speed feature and the standard ACU-RITE CSS DRO, which allows exactly the right speed for each job so tools perform better, cycle times are optimised and quality improves.
